Dream Sequence – Sleep.Sex.&.Love

I read a quote today that seized my imagination –

It was a quote made by a Mr. Milan Kundera.

I’ll paraphrase because doing so will perpetuate my train of thought for the purpose of this post…

“Having sex with someone and sleeping next to someone are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for sex (copulation), a desire that can potentially extend to an infinite number of people. Love is felt in the desire for shared sleep, a desire limited to one person.”

The one person you want to sleep next to and wake up to, everyday for the rest of your life.

How dreamy! Have you met the person you want to go to sleep with every night and wake up to every morning? That’s heavy, yo!

Eh, I’m letting the hopeless romantic in me come out to breathe. Humor me?

I lied to myself.

I tricked myself into swallowing the skewed views society fed me, And convinced myself it was love all along.

All along? All along. I was wrong.

Or was I?

Maybe not.

Context is everything

And out of context

Sex is a lie.

Because

Marriage isn’t a box.

To think outside of

It’s a home.

To make a life in.

Marriage isn’t gravity.

It’s the shuttle that opens up opportunities to explore

All the Uncharted Galaxies

In each other.

We could lose ourselves in a most beautiful way.

To get sucked into each other’s black hole

Is the goal

The point of no return

And why would we? I mean for what?

When in this three-strand cord is everything we could ever need

Yes Context is Everything

And out of context

Sex is a lie.

A lie that can blind us to the truth.

But we don’t care to see

As long as we feel justified

The “good” girl says “So what if I’m having sex I’m not out here sexing everybody I’m only doing it with you”

The slut says “So what if I have sex with a few at least I’m not a prostitute”

The prostitute says “So what if I’m a prostitute at least I’m getting paid,

These other chicks out here being taken advantage off too and getting their hearts broken for free

At least I’m smart enough to charge a fee”

And the vicious cycle of justification seems like it never ends

So what if its sex outside of marriage at least I’m not dead!

In any case he treats me well most of the time and he’s my fav so it must be love right?

Context is everything

And out of context

Sex is a lie.

Because

Marriage isn’t a box.

To think outside of

It’s a home.

To make a life in.

Marriage isn’t gravity.

It’s the shuttle that opens up opportunities to explore

All the Uncharted Galaxies

In each other.

We could lose ourselves in a most beautiful way.

To get sucked into each other’s black hole

Is the goal

The point of no return

And why would we? I mean for what?

When in this three-strand cord is everything we could ever need.

This could be a dream.

No sex until marriage.

You propose to me…

Baby I realize all I want to do is sleep

In your arms

On your chest

To feel its rise and fall every night for the rest of our one life

Together. Man and wife. Forever.

To wake up every morning to your face

Next to mine. How lovely. How divine.

And even though your morning breath will stink

The truth is

I’ve never felt this

Way about anybody else

Couldn’t see myself sleeping next to anybody else

Can’t imagine drooling on anybody else

Wouldn’t want to face another dawn or grow old with anybody else…

I’d being lying if I said another guy

(Especially if he’s fine)

Couldn’t get a rise out of my hormones

But you’re the song in my stride

I only want to harmonize with you.

So let’s become one

Kundera said love is felt is the desire for shared sleep and that, that desire is only limited to one

So maybe I’ve lied before but God loved me to the truth

You’re the only one I see so Love says it’s you.
